Join us in launching Town & Train, the debut horror novel by Ottawa’s James K. Moran


In a small Ontario town, seventeen-year-old John Daniel wakes by the railroad tracks with no recollection of how he got there. Something called him from his bed. Officer David Forester, a recent transfer from Toronto, struggles to fit into the local police force, despite resistance from established circles. Both soon suspect a more pervasive and menacing collusion occurring in town when an antique steam train arrives late in the night. At the phantasmal engine, a conductor promises the desperate locals an escape from their dying town, with its closed stores and shattered dreams—but there is no denying what the stranger really brings is the stuff of nightmares.
